Josh Herman

Creative Director, Cloud Imperium Games

Inspired by art and drawing as a kid, Creative Director Josh Herman tried his hand at other things like business school, entrepreneurship, and auto-body mechanic before finally deciding to pursue art as a career. Raised in Colorado he attended a local animation college and after graduation he moved to continue his education at Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood.

Immediately after graduating in late 2009 Josh began working at Legacy Effects working on movies like Real Steel, The Amazing Spiderman, and The Avengers. Josh left Legacy to try his hand in games and worked for Naughty Dog on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception as a character artist, but soon found himself back in movies and working for Marvel Studios working on titles like Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Avengers Infinity War.

Josh eventually moved back to working in games as an Creative Director for Cloud Imperium Games where he now oversees the character concept and pipeline teams on Star Citizen and Squadron 42.
